Can Vega produce the Magic once again?

Vega Magic is aiming for consecutive wins in one of South Australia’s feature sprints.

Thu, 17 May, 9:20 AM

Vega Magic is a clear favourite to win Saturday’s feature Group One from Morphettville – the $1million Darley Goodwood (1200 metres).


The gelding is easily the class runner of the field but comes into this first-up and has drawn a terrible barrier – gate 14 – for his return to racing.


Vega Magic hasn’t been seen since finishing seventh down the Flemington straight in the Darley Classic behind Redzel on November 11. On that occasion, he started well in the market.


Two starts back he was disappointing when fifth of nine against Hey Doc in the Manikato Stakes while the start before that, he produced one of the runs of his career.


The TAB Everest was a hot race and the Hayes, Hayes & Dabernig-trained runner rattled home from a rearward position to finish second behind Redzel.


Vega Magic has warmed up for this with an effortless trial win on April 17 at Tatura and is a proven performer fresh, winning three times and placing twice from six starts.


Most corporates have the five-year-old at around the $2.70-$2.80 mark while you can secure $2.90 @ Betfair.


Only South Australia’s best mare, Viddora, is under double figures when scoping out the rest of the field while Voodoo Lad is next best at $10.


Selections: Vega Magic 1, Viddora 2, Santa Ana Lane 3, Thronum 4
